Qantas reinstates first class on the Sydney-Singapore route


Qantas customers travelling between Sydney and Singapore can now opt for the carrier’s full first-class service for the first time in over two years. The airline has rostered its recently refurbished A380 onto a daily flight between the two cities, which offers 14 first-class suites – as well as expanded business and premium economy cabins.

In addition, Qantas has reopened its first-class lounge at Changi airport – the facility was originally unveiled in late 2019, but only operated for a few months before closing as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. The lounge has a capacity of 240 guests and offers a Neil Perry fine dining experience with a menu inspired by Singapore’s dining scene. 

In addition to Qantas’ daily return A380 service now operating from Sydney to Singapore (and onto London), the carrier also offers 20 A330 weekly flights from Singapore to Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, and Brisbane.

Commenting on the news Qantas Group Chief Customer Officer Stephanie Tully, said:

“We’d only just opened our brand-new First lounge before the pandemic forced its closure. Many of our Frequent Flyers never had the chance to see it.

“We’re delighted to once again welcome our customers back to this beautiful lounge at Changi Airport. Our lounge team is excited to be back and eager to offer the warmest hospitality to Qantas and our partner airline customers.

“Singapore plays an important role in Qantas’s worldwide network as we continue to ramp up capacity in line with strong travel demand. It’s great to have our First offering back both in the air and on the ground at Changi Airport, which is consistently recognised as one of the best airports in the world.”
